Medicating equines at an equine hospital (IV, IM, Sub-Q, PO, Eye-meds etc.), following charted directions/recording on charts, handling foals/weanlings/yearlings/stallions, placing catheters, running fluids, assisting with dystocias/foaling.
-3 years at an equine hospital (as of August 2017- including a 6 month tech externship)
I've worked a good deal with dystocias and dummy foals. I have a good deal of patience for assisting foals that are having trouble learning to nurse. If I had to pick a specialty I would say foal care would probably near the top.
I've competed with my own mare on and off for the last 14 years. We have shown in Western Pleasure, English Pleasure and Ranch Horse. I've never been super competitive with her, but this past spring we won the Reserve Grand Championship in Ranch Horse at the BAHA Spring Classic. I was really proud, since I've done all the training on her.
